Radiating a divine aura from her moon-like countenance, adorned like the cosmic queen mother, goddess Lakshmi in her Padmasana Gajalakshmi roopa in this Tanjore painting is a magnificent sight to behold. Elongated Kiritamukuta, glistening silk sari, and gold coins raining from her hands add to the grandeur of her presence. Elephants with exquisite white bodies pay adulations to Devi Gajalakshmi, with their weight held by delicate banana leaves.
In the foreground of this Thanjavur artwork, goddess Saraswati and Ganesha in individual arched shrines complete the potent trinity of Lakshmi-Saraswati-Ganesha, eternal sources of abundance, wisdom, and auspiciousness. Traditional red color, a symbol of Shakti and fecundity dominates the pallet of this painting, which brims with the powers of Gajalakshmi.
